Like Wordpress, bbPress also makes use of what generally known as "pretty permalinks." Permalinks are the permanent URLs that link to your website forum topics or replies. By default, the permalink will look like this:
If you look at this URL, you would not know where this URL is pointed. You would not have any idea of the content that the link provides unless you were to click on the link to view the page in your internet browser. To make it easier to read, "pretty permalinks" were created to allow users to have a better idea of the contents of the link. This also helps with your search engine optimization.

What are Slugs?
Slugs are part of the URL that refer to a page or post- the entire URL is basically the address for the page you're viewing.

In this case the slug would be postno123". To make it friendly you could change the slug from "postno123" to "how-to-post-123". This may make the URL longer, but it also makes the URL easier to understand, and the user viewing the link will know something about the page before viewing it. This can be done in the Forum options under SLUGS.
